Introduction Looking critically at different ideological approaches to justice used in Canada, specific traits that are deemed inherently ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ are widely at play. The Canadian legal system has historically been dominated almost exclusively by masculine ideologies, with an emphasis on punishment and a focus on rational and consistent thought. Canada’s current legal climate has seen the implementation of a number of new approaches to justice, many with new ideological bases. This paper will consider both the masculine and feminine ideological approaches to justice that are at work in the Canadian justice system, and study the dominance of either one over the other throughout time. An important feature to note going forward
Gender stereotypes are generalizations about gender differences, attributes as well as the roles of men and women in society. Traditionally the role of the stereotypical male is to be the breadwinner of the household; he is usually seen as independent career driven and not in touch with his emotional side. Whereas the traditional role of the female is to be dependent on a male figure, have children and then nurture them while staying in touch with their emotional side. In most literature these stereotypes are prevalent.
Children of the Dust is a novel about a nuclear fallout and the people who rebuild society, I'm focusing on Simon who is the first sign of hope for the dinosaurs in the bunker. I believe that Simon is an interesting character in this story because he inhabits all of the traits that the communist society of the mutants didn't like. For example he is quite selfish and can't come to the realisation that his race is becoming outdated. We see this in the text as he uses a lot of personal pro-nouns such as when he said " And where are my clothes" to Laura, this implies that he is thinking about himself, if he was a non-selfish person he would have said something along the lines of "Hey Laura, could you please get me my clothes".
Inspiration Throughout The Decades Langston Hughes once said “In writing truthfully about the life of the Negro people and the relationships of negroes and whites, in this country, it helps to teach Negro children that there is a culture among their own people. Therefore I think that Negro writers help to uplift the whole mass of the people” (Voices and Visions).
Stereotypes make a huge impact on life today. Stereotypes can portray how different genders, religions, races, or cultures are supposed to act according to society. Although stereotypes are nothing new, they are more easily accessible in today’s social media driven culture. Many individuals feel they are required to conform to society’s stereotypes, no matter how unrealistic or uncharacteristic they are. The video that was provided shows a variety of commercials that are an excellent example of common stereotypes.

Williams-forson situates her work in the intersection of race; gender and identity arguing that the kinds of food people eat are the key aspects of the cultural identities they are associated with. She draws a comparison in his work regarding the black people’s food preferences and argues that they have been engaged in ideological wars concerning food and race for so long. Williams-forson presents her idea that the cultural aspects of African American people is the key reason why a man should take a big piece of chicken since in most families they are the sole bread winners and are therefore entitled to a large portion of any delicacy cooked in such family. She associates her work on African American food ways with the African cultural heritage
Stereotypes are never-ending cycles that have been instilled into the American society. Women are perceived to be weaker than men and also displayed as failures who are inept to gain confidence and courage. Marriage and the importance of having a male influence are prominent themes in Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. Women are traditionally stereotyped as objects, vessels of empty desire, and assets. Their standard domestic chores and occupational jobs make females seem less valuable.
Racism is an issue which is often addressed when talking about ethnic groups, minorities and immigrants. People who are oppressed, left out or hurt because of their race or ethnicity are victims of racism. However, this action is mainly associated with black people being racially abused by white people and white people are often called out for having white privilege. This issue has been popular ever since there is racial and ethnic diversity, but after groups such as ‘BlackLivesMatter’ and ‘AllLivesMatter’ were founded more people joined the discussion on racial abuse and white privilege. Both the ‘BlackLivesMatter’ and ‘AllLivesMatter’ campaigns were formed after the shooting of a black civilian, Michael Brown, by a white cop in Ferguson
From the moment a child opens their eyes, everything they come in contact with is gendered into two categories; male and female. From specific colors to clothing, certain objects are pushed for children to like based on their sex. These gender stereotypes are extremely prominent in the sporting world. In life females are typically deemed as the weaker sex, in the sporting world they are deemed as the ones who do not have the stamina and drive to compete in such rough sports, such as football or baseball. The stereotype continues on with the idea that all women want is to be a mother and that there is no place for a women to play a sport, but instead they can sit in the bleachers like all the other moms.
